POCATELLO -- The Idaho State Police say a 26-year-old man who broke into a Pocatello home by diving through a closed window has died a day after Pocatello police used a stun gun to subdue him.
ISP Capt. Eric Dayley says suspect Kevin Benglan died at about 6 p.m. Wednesday at Portneuf Medical Center. An autopsy was planned Thursday.
Benglan was taken to the hospital by ambulance Tuesday after Pocatello police officers used a stun gun in an attempt to subdue and arrest him after he broke into a home and exhibited violent behavior.
Despite a stun gun being used in conjunction with Benglan's death, Dayley emphasized that police could not conclude that the stun gun killed him.
"A stun gun was used on him - and he did die - but to say he died because of the stun gun would be jumping to conclusions," Dayley said.
Dayley also pointed to the fact that Benglan dived through a closed window, which he says was likely very traumatic.
However, Dayley did say Benglan had no pulse after being shocked with the stun gun. Emergency crews were seen administering CPR as he was being loaded into an ambulance.
